DESCRIPTION

SINE MOVIE
Taylor polynomial approximations to y = sin x are
% presented in a graphical form. Successive graphs
% of Taylor polynomials of degrees 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 
% 11, 13, 15, 17, 19 are superimposed. 
% As the degree increases the Taylor polynomials wrap
% themselves onto the sine curve over longer intervals. 
% There is a built in time delay.

% Use in the form ==> sinmovie <==

DESCRIPTION

LOG MOVIE Taylor polynomial approximations to y = ln(1+x) are
% presented in a graphical form. Successive graphs
% of Taylor polynomials of degrees 1 through 20
% are superimposed.
% As the degree increases the Taylor polynomials wrap
% themselves onto a portion of the curve. 
% There is a built in time delay.
